What Current Oklahoma Building Code and Editions Are Adopted?

Applicability (statewide, local, limited): LIMITED

Codes are adopted locally. The OUBCC has adopted nationally recognized base-model codes with modifications through the state’s rulemaking process. All jurisdictions in the state of Oklahoma have the ability to adopt these minimum codes for their area. These jurisdictions may also adopt codes that are more restrictive.  Each jurisdiction has adopted a variety of editions of the codes. The State has provided a base model for adoption however; it appears some jurisdictions have adopted earlier editions of the code.
